Cocktail Hour with Lisa Fox

1 Comment

September is here, which means it’s time to put away those blenders and frozen drinks, and start bringing out the darker delights.  Fall is the perfect season for bourbons and brandy, they are an excellent complement for those crisp autumn nights.

The Sidecar is a classic cocktail, perfect for any occasion. It has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity recently, and new twists on the once popular drink are showing up in bars across the country. Today, we’ll stick to the basics, and honestly, I don’t think the cocktail needs any hip improvements. It’s simple to make, requires only three ingredients, and it’s delicious. If you are not much of a brandy drinker, the Sidecar would be an outstanding introduction to it’s remarkable delights.

The Sidecar

  • 1 1/2 ounces Cognac (I like Courvoisier)
  • 3/4 ounce orange liqueur (Cointreau or Triple Sec or Grand Marnier)
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice

Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a martini glass.  For a touch of sweetness, rim the edge of the glass with lemon juice and dip it in sugar.

Enjoy!

Author: Lisa Fox

World-renowned neurosurgeon, master chef, secret member of American royalty, seducer of legions of beautiful, outrageously sexy angels and demons and vampires and werewolves and the occasional pirate, Lisa Fox has done it all… in her own mind. In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.
